>Best V-day bucket ever

>Woo hoo I have my pictures up from all my v-day projects from eighteen25, enjoy…
The man of my dreams…

My miracle baby, when he was 2.5 he fell from a window. 17 days later he walked out of the hospital…

this is my special baby. I had to wait 4 years to get him and then got his brother 20 months later. Not complaining, but he was long awaited for and didn’t get to be the baby long. I love all my babies though 🙂
My baby, I made his first, and determined I had to order these and fram them. Actually got them in today, now to find some frames I like for them 🙂
My girl, Tinker Bell, the only way I have one right now, I love that kitty 🙂

jacob’s cat, Baby Jaguar, not my fav kitty, but couldn’t leave his out 😉

I thought this one was adorable, though I don’t have a round punch, so I did have to cut out a LOT of circles by hand, oh well, it was worth it in the end 🙂

These were fun to make, though hubby had trouble getting his chocolate out since it was glued down. We had to open the bottom and “birth” the chocolate out 😉

Tic tac/starburst/m and m robots, these ended up being the boys favorite.

The tutorial for my I dig you item did have a tag, but I would have had to make my own, and knowing I still had a lot of projects to go, I was not up for the challange, so I just wrote it on the shovel. I am all about ease!!

I absolutely loved this idea. though we don’t need more toy cars I just had to go with it. I got them three mustangs and an F-150, no hints intended 😉

My more practical gift 😉 And we do make a perfect pair. I realized I should have also done a tooth brush with you make me smile on it, would have been good for all that candy I gave them too!!

My middle child loves chocolate coins, so much that when my dad gave him a real gold dollar he wanted him to open it 🙂

Hubby’s was for my favorite crush, the boys’ said that the best crush is the kind you can drink 🙂

This adorable print out was supposed to have a picture put in the circle. It was late, I was tired, and I don’t have a fancy photo editing program, and even if what I have could have done it, I did not have the brain power. I do have a lot of dif V-day stamps, so I used one of those to fill it in. Hidden under the wrapper is a hersey bar 🙂

My husband and kid’s love the round place and bake cookies, so though they didn’t take much effort I made two packages to throw in there buckets.

I sacrificed for my kids and drank 3 frappachinos that day, the 4th got put in a cup in the fridge, my body was not happy with me that night to say the least, but these jars turned out great. I love the way they look. The tutorial said to paint the lid with chalkboard paint and then write something in chalk. No chalkboard paint here so I just cut out circles and left it blank.

All their goodies. My son is homeschooled this year. I told him that he would get a better V-day bucket than had he gone to school. Oh and the explanation for the buckets. I needed the shovels for one of the items and this was the only way. I hadn’t figured out what I was going to put the goodies in, so this worked perfectly.

Brother digging into his bucket 🙂

Not sure what he is looking at here, but he sure was happy

Cookies, yeah

What’s this, look at that jar of m and ms, what a spoiled kid, someone must love him 🙂

Checking out his Robot.

I love that kid, and his brother’s too, but look at that sweet face!!

Hmm, what is this 😉

Big Brother helping Little Brother check out his goodies…

No clue what he is doing or thinking, here you can kind of see our traditional V-day meal, hot dogs, beans, and mac n cheese. On or around V-day is when Pitchers and Catchers report to spring training. That day is more important than V-day for us, it is the start of a new baseball season, a sign of new hope. Fri night hubby and I had Chinese and watched Fever Pitch, though about the Red Sox’s it is a great movie for a Cub Fan, especially just before spring training starts when there is always new hope…

Little Brother finally got to see ALL his goodies, though some, like the tic tacs, he won’t get to enjoy 😦

Brother is showing me his Robot man I made him. He was told one starburst, yeah, he ate them all. love that even though he has no inside his head is still attached 😉
